LOS ANGELES – Celebrating its 17th season November 13, 2014 through January 19, 2015, the HOLIDAY ICE RINK PERSHING SQUARE, has become a tradition for holiday fun in the Southland.

Presented by Willy Bietak Productions in collaboration with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation & Parks, the spacious ice oasis brings people together of all ethnic backgrounds and cultures. Generating millions in revenue to the downtown area over the past decades, the rink enhances the holiday happenings in the city and gives back through free outreach community events. Thousands of skaters and enthusiasts make use of the rink’s safe and seasonally inviting outdoor atmosphere as they celebrate the holidays with friends and family. Hundreds of free tickets are donated each season to underserved youths.

None of this would be possible without the support of the rink’s generous sponsors. Partnerships open doors to new opportunities and expanded awareness. “We are especially grateful to our sponsors and pleased they share our vision of giving back by helping us make the holidays special for thousands of people,” says Willy Bietak.

The official sponsors for the 2014-2015 season are: PayPal, Wicked, Megabus, Univision 34 & UniMás 46, Metro & Metrolink, Hot 92.3, 104.3 MYFM, 102.7 KIIS FM, Yelp, La Opinion and Pershing Square RENEW.
